Christine DeLucia is Associate Professor of History at Mount Holyoke College, and will be joining the History faculty at Williams College in summer 2019.  Her first book, Memory Lands: King Philip's War and the Place of Violence in the Northeast, published by Yale University Press in the Henry Roe Cloud Series on American Indians and Modernity in 2018, traces histories of Indigenous resistance to New England settler colonialism and their long legacies and contested memorialization.  Her writing has also appeared in or is forthcoming in the journals Native American and Indigenous Studies, Journal of American History, William and Mary Quarterly, and other venues.  She is presently a long-term fellow at the Newberry Library in Chicago, working on a new book about Native communities' entanglements with Euro-American colonialism in the eighteenth century, material culture, and decolonizing methodologies.
